    Not final, in fact. The proofs will have this cover, but there’s still a fair bit to do to the finished thing…

    Thanks, Joe. Title and article have been amended.

    Speaking of proofs, when are they going to start appearing?

    Text went off last week, so they’ll be printed some time in september and will go out to booksellers, reps, foreign publishers and so on at that time. Sorry to say bloggers might have to wait a while longer, though, since we’d like reviews to start appearing a bit closer to publication time, if possible…

    Damn those embargo-breakers for ruining it for the rest of us!

    Ah, much better than without the blood! It’s amazing how much a little carnage lightens up a whole cover. ;)
